Would you be comfortable immersed for a long time in a 5 mm wetsuit? Drysuits are rated for colder water than wetsuits. Other than that, it is nice to get out of a drysuit dry and drive home, but the possibility of a leak is a drawback as you mention, and they are baggy. I don't think anyone is doing it for style or comfort.POACHER wrote:Excuse my ignorance, but why do people like these baggy suits?

We ride with ice flows on half the lake in 5 mil suits and I'm completely warm. Are these suits about comfort? My wetsuit is very comfy. I'm not so sure I'd want a baggy fitting suit while riding waves......Also if you get water in the thing. I've crashed hard enough that the neck seal allowed some water in my wetsuit. It's cold for a second and then fine. What happens if you get a bunch of water past a seal in these baggy suits???
Just wondering. If there is a tangible benefit, I'd consider it. If it's a style thing, I don't care.

Picked one up too... Their wetsuits are top notch so figured that this should be the same. The price was right too! Its been out for a year now, interesting that there are not many people that have these yet.mdksniper wrote: I'll let you know in about 3-4 months when I can use the one I just bought.
Can't beat a neoprene drysuit for $400 bucks (on sale).. well, unless it sucks.
